I think I underestimated the number of hours this workbench would take me, even though the article pegged it at about 30.
So … I’ve been overdoing it a bit on shop time.
Sue me ;-)
Anyway, the workbench base—also made entirely out of 2×8 boards of Home Depot Douglas Fir—is complete.
The legs are glue-ups. The end assemblies are glued. The end assemblies are bolted to the frame rails.
It’s square. It’s solid. It’s stable.
Left to do:
- cut some oval-ish holes in the cleats, to attach the bench top
- trim the ends of the bench top
- drill the dog holes in the bench top
- chamfer edges on the bench top (used my mini HF hand plane to chamfer the edges of the legs !)
- sand everything to about 180 grit
- attach the top
- maybe finish. Maybe not ;-)
Thanks for stopping by :-)
